The master bedroom is positioned on the first floor with the other four bedrooms located on the lower ground floor level together with the family bathroom.

The area is renowned as having some of the most picturesque scenery in the western Lake District, enjoying views to the foot of Scafell to the north and sweeping west down the Esk valley to the Irish Sea. Eskdale Green offers some local amenities including a primary school, a nursery and a well stocked village shop, with more comprehensive amenities available at nearby Gosforth, and is a popular stop along the La'al Ratty, a miniature steam railway that runs all year round from Ravenglass to Eskdale on the Cumbrian coast.

Take a right at the fork in the road on to Whitecroft and continue along this road for approximately five miles onto Bowerhouse Bank.
